  • "As you sow, so shall you reap"

    "Human being gets what he strives for. Man sees the result of his efforts" (An Najm 39-40)

    I have always heard these quotes in context of worldly success in one's career, business, field, sports...etc. but rarely in terms of success in following one's religious obligations by making efforts in becoming more obedient towards orders of Allah (Swt) through prayers, Zikr, Quran recitation, Sadaqa, encouraging good discouraging bad, serving others....etc. and raising the bar for oneself with each passing day.

    That is why when a man asked a scholar about a helpful 'wazeefa' and to pray for his becoming pious and obedient towards Allah (swt). That scholar replied, "No one's dua can be effective unless one himself does HIMMAT (courageous effort) with patience and dedication to become a good Mo'min" (Just like he does in order to succeed in any other field of life). In worldly matters, we never become too lazy in our obedience towards an examiner, boss, instructor...etc. with a continuous hope of their forgiveness of our intentional carelessness time and again, then why in case of the AL MIGHTIEST of All! Who would still forgive us, but surely doesn't deserve a poluted obedience from our side, which unfortunately people like me have.

    May Allah (swt) bless us all with a courage to become immensely dedicated towards Allah (swt) and HIS prophet's ways MORE than to anyone/anything else.

    Read not to contradict and confute, not to believe and take for granted, not to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. Inhale positive, exhale negative

    ameen jazakAllahu khayr

    Allah guides the one who strives hard. waladhina jaahadu feena lanahdiyanahu subulanaa
    Allah does not guide the wrong doers. wallahu laa yahdil qawma dhaalimun/faasiquun
    Allah beautifies imaan in the hearts of those who he wishes to guide. walaakinal laaha hababa ilaykumul imaan
    May Allah open our hearts to islaam, it is he who opens the heart of whoever he wishes to islaam. Faman yuridilaahu an yahdiyahu yashrah lahu sadrahu lil islaam
